‘What a load of race-baiting nonsense.’

Variety has reported that an investigation has been launched by the U.K. Media Regulator Ofcom after more than 41,000 people wrote in to complain about the comments Morgan had made regarding Markle’s claim that she was turned down for help after having suicidal thoughts.
“We have launched an investigation into Monday’s episode of Good Morning Britain under our harm and offense rules,” an Ofcom spokesperson told Variety. Ofcom had received 41,015 complaints about Morgan’s comments by 2 PM U.K. time on Tuesday.
Winfrey conducted an exclusive interview with Prince Harry and Markle that aired on Sunday. At one point, the discussion veered toward the purported racist mindset the royal family displayed toward Markle. It was stated that the monarchy had “concerns and conversations” during Markle’s pregnancy about the baby’s skin color being too dark. It had reportedly been suggested to Prince Harry that Archie’s skin color being “too brown” could be a problem. Markle also revealed that the royal family denied Archie the title of prince, yet, had given that title to Prince William and Duchess Kate’s two boys, George and Louis, and they also refused to grant Archie a high level of security.
